Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession
2 Where's the romance Stars

I love Katie Ruggle. I was over the moon for her Search and Rescue series. So when I seen In Her Sights on Netgalley and seen it was a start of a new series I was so excited, but this book was such a let down for me. It took me over two weeks to get this book read. I was so bored I kept putting it down and would try again a few days later and get bored within 10 mins of restarting. Top that off with the fact that there was not much romance to speak of and this book fe

In Her Sights by Katie Ruggle

Fantastic series starter. Romantic suspense with a family of female bounty hunters.
Lots of fun humor and a hero that is simply swoon worthy for his comments and actions.
Not everything is wrapped up at the end beyond the specific romance between Molly and John.

Don’t read the epilogue if you hate cliffhangers.

Thanks to @Sourcebooks for the paperback ARC.
Molly is the oldest and has been like a mother to her sisters, since their own mother, Jane, is a very selfish, flighty woman. Jane is something else and she causes a lot of trouble, she ticked me right off! Jane puts the family home up as collateral when she needs to make bail, the home that Molly and her sisters paid off after Jane just about drained it dry with a reverse mortgage. So, yeah, she’s a real winner of a mom.

Now Molly is saddled with locating her mom, and at the mercy of a shady b
As the caretaker of a dysfunctional family, Molly Pax handles it all: her sisters, the her manipulative mother and the very annoying (but hot) John Carmondy who can’t seem to leave her alone even though they’re both career-rivals.

I didn’t know what to expect from Katie Ruggle’s new series—my experience with Ruggles’s writing has been varied—but bounty hunting sisters finding their HEA sounded like a unique-enough premise to branch out from her Rocky Mountain books.

I’ve not read anything by this author before, so I was pleased to be able to jump into a new series. The Rocky Mountain Bounty Hunters are a group of five sisters, the eldest of whom, Molly, has been as much of a mother as a sister to her siblings owing to the irresponsible nature of their actual mother, Jane. All the sisters work as bail enforcement agents – bounty hunters – and In Her Sights opens as Molly Pax – the eldest – is interrupted in her surveillance of her current target by the une ...more

So I'm a huge fan of this authors work and couldn't wait to dive into this the first book about a family of bounty hunters. Molly is the eldest sister and from a young age has generally known that her mother is a waste of space. She's a petty criminal, a serial user when it comes to men and now someone who has jumped bail leaving Molly and her sisters to pick up the pieces. As if that wasn't enough to contend with Molly keeps tripping over John a rival bounty hunter who seems determined to stay ...more

In Her Sights by Katie Ruggle is the first book in her new series and was a wild ride from the beginning.

Five sisters who are bounty hunters are some of the strongest heroines that Ms. Ruggle has written to date. Each one of the sisters contributes to the business by using their personal strengths. Ms. Ruggle used this book to set the stage and introduce each sister as well as John Carmody, a rival bounty hunter, who is extremely interested in the eldest sister, Molly. The plot is swiftly paced,

In Her Sights is the first in the Rocky Mountain Bounty Hunters series. Molly and her four sisters run a bounty hunter business. When their Mom gets in trouble and jumps bail, they’re on the case. Fast paced action from the start had me quickly turning the pages. Molly & John’s chemistry leaps of the pages. If In Her Sights is any indication of the series, the rest will be fantastic. Just one more reason that I’m a Katie Ruggle fan for life!

Why has it taken me so long to realize that Katie Ruggle is one of my favorite authors? I'm absolutely baffled about this. I have never once been disappointed with one of her romantic suspense novels and In Her Sights might take the cake as my all-time favorite. A family of bounty hunting sisters are sure to get themselves in a whole lot of trouble.

The thing I absolutely adore about Katie Ruggle novels (In Her Sights included) is that her characters are so real. I mean, for god's sake, this is a
Skip your bail and you'll never know what hit you when these Rocky Mountain Bounty Hunters cuff you and march you to the nearest police station. I thought the premise of five bounty hunting sisters and their romances to be a great formula for a new series and I was right.

Not my favorite Katie Ruggle book. I was a bit disappointed with this one in terms of the suspense and the romance plot. It pains me to say that. However, the writing wasn't bad nor the characters. It just didn't fit perfectly like I wanted it to.

In Her Sights focus heavily on family issues and chasing around people I didn't quite understand their significance to the overall plot. I don't mind that actually. The romantic tension left a lot to be desired her. It wasn't slow burn for me since I d

Molly needs help, stat in this refreshingly different and wild ride of a thrilling romance.

There are two plots woven in this book. One is Jane, the mother of the sisters, has allegedly committed a burglary as well as complicit with stealing Molly's car. This plot looks like it's going to be carried over through the series and was unresolved. Plus not much happened on this plot.

The main plot was setting up Molly and John to work together to catch a bail jumper.

But mostly it seemed like a lot of uninteresting stuff. I really couldn't get into the family nicknames, the dialogue or the b

I enjoy everything I've read by Katie Ruggle, which is mostly romantic suspense. In Her Sights starts off a new series, Rocky Mountain Bounty Hunters.  There is a free anthology, Turn the Tide, which includes an introduction to the series, Any Necessary Force, which I really wish I had read first.  *OK  I read it last night

I have to admit, up front, that I love a clueless partner within the main couple of any story – genre doesn’t matter. It’s that bold as a tree that stepped out in the road in front of your car reaction that eventually happens that makes me either smile or laugh out loud. There’s a lot within IN HER SIGHTS that made me laugh, and get annoyed, and angry and completely lost in this opening story in the new series about five bounty hunter sisters, their criminal mother an

I enjoyed this author's first series, and the premise of bounty hunting sisters appealed to me. Molly Pax is the oldest and mothering one of her family always watching out for everyone, being responsible, and having a plan. She is tough, brave, snarky, and smart. She has four sisters living with her that help out with the family bounty hunting business, and an irresponsible mother who instigates the beginning of the drama in this book. Each of the sisters is unique and have their o

I just love reading the first book in a new series. The possibilities are endless. Will it crash and burn or put me to sleep? Or will it immediately grab me, making me whine with impatience waiting on the next installment? Thank goodness this book falls into the latter category! I loved the one book I've read so far by Katie Ruggle, and I was hoping I'd be as happy with this one. Her fun characters drew me right into this new series.

Molly Pax and her sisters run a bounty hunting operation out of their house. Spending years keeping track of their irresponsible mother means they have contacts with all sorts of shady folk.

John Carmondy is a rival bounty hunter who keeps trying to get Molly to come work for him, and who keeps showing up wherever Molly is working to catch a skip. Her sisters seem to think John has a thing for Molly, but she doesn’t see it.

4.5* stars of slow burn magic.

This is the first of a new series, and you will need to read this one before the next as we are left very much with an unfinished underlying plot - let alone the sisters who are still in need of finding their HEA - and there will be so much more to enjoy from Molly, no doubts at all.

We are pitched straight into the Pax sisters bounty hunting business and I love how we get to meet the sister
I have to say, I’m so disappointed in this book. Katie Ruggle’s previous book was a favorite from 2018 and I, to be fair, did expect a lot from this new one. But it honestly almost felt like it was written completely by somebody else. Or maybe I’m just in a weird headspace. But for whatever reason, this one did not work for me at all. And no one is sadder about that than me.
First of all, I just never really could get a firm idea or picture in my mind of any of the characters. They were very flat

I read this book in one sitting. It was... absolutely incredible. This story had high stakes and so much action, yet it felt lighthearted and fun and romantic. I wasn't expecting the romance to be a slow burn(those tend to be hit or miss for me), but between the afore mentioned high stakes as well as their relationship dynamic the first part of the book (she viewed him as a rival/didn't know he was into her) it worked very well here. Especially since it was made up for by the fact that every int ...more

In Her Sights is the first book in Katie Ruggle’s new series, Rocky Mountain Bounty Hunters. Thanks goes to the publisher, via Net-Galley, for inviting me to read and review in advance of publication. My opinions are my own and are not influenced in any way.

I enjoyed the family unity between the five sisters, and I empathized with their problems with their sticky-fingered mother. It’s amazing the young women are not seriously affected by her dreadful behavior. It must have been chaos living unde
